I Am A Former Owner Of A 2003 Autcocker So It Was A Pretty Big Step In Upgrading. I Have Heard Of This Gun Months Before It Actually Came Out. I Was Not Really Interested, But More In A Shocker. Some Pictures Finally Caught My Eye's And Before I Even Knew It I Was Ready To Join The Family.
I Went To A Pro-shop After Finally Selling My Autococker, First Glance At It. I Was Like Holy Poops That Is Small! Asked The Store Clerk How Much It Would Cost Totally. $910.00 Was The Reply Just $110.00 Over My Budget, Sure Enough Asked My Parents To Borrow Some Money And Promised To Work Hard And Repay.
Took This Baby Home, Was Very Well Packaged So That It Would Not Get Damaged. In Excitement I Quickly Opened It Up. Again Very Small, Light And Low Profile.
Visually There Was Some Scratches And Milling Errors, And Anno Wear
-the Window Where The Bolt Pin Actuates
-ram Internal Body
-threads Where The Barrel Screws In Was Misshape But Some How Still Accepted The Barrel With Out Cross Threading
These Will Happen Over Time And Is Very Normal, Did Not Affect Performance.
I Put A Not So Good Looking Duckbill Asa On It And Slapped On My 68 3000 P.e
And Turned The Baby On, Turned Off The Eye's Which Was Pretty Simple With A Touch Of A Button. Started Ripping It No Problem. I Opened It Up And Turned On The Ramping Mode Which Was Either #3 Or 4 Dip (I Forget) I Liked How It Had An Alias Trigger On It Which Was Good, You Can Easy Hit 15 Bps+ With Out Capped Ramping. Stock Trigger Was Fine Had No Problems With Bouncing Etc. I Was Going To Play With It The First Time The Next Day And Did Not Want To Screw It Up By Messing Around With The Board Etc.
First Day. Went To The Chronograph And Was Getting Really Bad Consistency And Velocity. I Was Shooting Like 4 Month Old Big-ball So I Guess That Is Why. I Did Not Think It Would Be So Accurate But To My Surprise (Shooting Old Paint Remember!) It Shot Like I Was Using Fresh And New Paint Accurate!
Air- It Drained My 68 3000 Completely I Had To Go And Fill It Every 2-3 Games. About 2-3 Hoppers Full (I Was Using Some ****ty Halo Tsa So I Was Chopping Because It Would Not Keep Up) I Could Not Fit A Halo B On To The Feedneck Because It Needed To Be Sanded Which Was Not Aloud By My Brother (The Halo Belongs To Him)
Chronograph I Was Getting About 5+- But Over All It Shot With No Problem,
I Started To Dry Fire As A Crowd Of People Started To Gather I Noticed That The Bolt Started To Stick Forward I Had To Rouble Shoot It, Turned Up The Lpr And The Dwell. Notice; One Little Twitch Of That Front Cap Will Change Your Air Flow And Screw Up Everything. I Put Teflon On The Threads So That It Would Not Get Twisted Easy.
Chopping Was Really A Paint To Clean Because You'd Have To Pull The Bolt Pin Out Which Was A Pain In The *** To Do After A Game. You'd Had To Take The Eye Covers Off And Clean The Eyes Off Because The Paint Would Just Completely Cover The Eyes.
The T-chop Mod Was A Really Good Idea, Although I Think It Voids Your Warranty. I Also Tried Dyeing The Bolt With Rite Dye Turned Out Pretty Good (I Did It Pink) Looks Pimp. Also For You Guys That Are Really Careful You Can Take A Hack Saw And Cut Off The End Of The Bolt So It Flows With The Body.
Over All It Is A Great Gun, Buy It! Shoots Like No Other! Money well spent.
PS. Lube your gun with dow 55 not 33. Do not lube the bolt it will swell, Buy try-flow which works for Derlin bolts.
Best $910.00 CND I have ever spent!
